It certainly won't take Tom Parrotta long to land on his feet in the coaching ranks.
According to the Buffalo News, which provides some of the best news and insight about MAAC teams of any print publication, as reporters were getting settled in to interview the ex-Canisius coach on Tuesday Parrotta was on the phone interviewing for an assistant coach's position with an ACC program.
